GetGlasgowMovingA new campaign to Get Glasgow Moving will be holding a public meeting at Renfield St Stephen’s Parish Church, 260 Bath Street, G2 4JP from 7-9pm on Thursday 15 September 2016. The information about the event is as follows:

“Most people in Glasgow rely on public transport to get around (only 49% of households have cars), yet our public transport network is a total mess:

• Private bus companies continue to cut our vital services and increase fares so that they’re completely unaffordable.
• Glasgow Subway (built in 1896) still only serves a tiny area of our city and is the only underground in the whole world never to have been extended.
• Our overground trains are operated by a company (Abellio) owned by the Dutch state (not ours!)
• And our bike hire is run by a private company (Nextbike GmbH) based in Germany…

Compare this to Edinburgh, where publicly-owned Lothian Buses are popular with residents offering a comprehensive service and affordable fares. Read the rest of this entry »

SouthCityWayGlasgow has secured Scottish Government backed Community Links Plus funding of £3.25 million pounds for the South City Way cycle route. The project will see an investment of £6.5 million, with £3.25 million coming from Glasgow City Council Capital funding.

Hot on the (w)heels of the South West City Way, the South City Way will add another piece to the development of quality cycle commuter routes in Glasgow and will provide a 2 mile segregated cycle way between Queen’s Park on the Southside to the Merchant City in Glasgow’s city centre. The programme includes significant upgrades on the streetscape  along the route and better services for pedestrians and public transport. You can find out moreon Glasgow City Council’s website www.glasgow.gov.uk/cycling or on Twitter, check for #CLplus!

Interestingly South City Way will cost £6.5 million pounds for 2 miles of cycle way compared to the M74 extension which cost over £650 million for 5 miles – a staggering £130 million per mile – that would buy 100 South City Ways!!
